Kyle Schwarber thinks Jorge Soler would win a Cubs home run derby

The Cubs have been extremely reliant on home runs this season. Fortunately, balls have been flying out of the park.

Any fan would love to see the Cubs lineup and compete in a home run derby. If they did, Kyle Schwarber has a pretty good idea who would win, and it’s not him.

Soler finished the regular season with 10 home runs, but has been on a home run streak since the start of the postseason. The Cubs outfielder had a pair of home runs against the Cardinals in the NLDS.

To his own credit, Schwarber leads the team with three home runs in the playoffs, including a pair of absolute bombs.

There are only two Cubs players who have actual home run derby experience, although it didn’t turn out too well for them. Both Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant were bounced in the first round of this year’s MLB Home Run Derby.

Hopefully, for the Cubs sake, the home runs continue to jump through October. They will find out who their NLCS opponent will be Thursday night after the Dodgers and Mets deciding Game 5.
